Why cant someone who already has a facility with tools and employees in the US make an affordable entry level guitar? Why do they have to outsource it to another country? I realize all the "other" makers do it, but being "different" from all the others is what started my attraction to PRS guitars. Please dont think I'm knocking the SE line (i've owned one in the past) I think they're really well made, I just dont understand "why" they have to be made outside the US. I for one wish PRS and it's board of directors would have reconsidered that venture. Money does strange things to people.
